I read somewhere that most youtube videos work without flash, so I decided to ditch flash and join the youtube HTML5 trial. But after that, many (not all) youtube videos complain with "The Adobe Flash player is required for video playback". For example, these:

V1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTV8_dJngFg&feature=player_embedded
V2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTV23B5gBsQ&feature=player_embedded

(removing &feature=player_embedded doesn't have any effect). However, if another site embeds those videos, I'm able to watch them:

V1: http://cheezburger.com/47522561
V2: http://cheezburger.com/47388417

Is there any reason for that? Any way to solve it?

This is firefox 18 with USE=gstreamer.

Both work fine for me wit html5. I am however using this greasemonkey script: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/152973
I can confirm without using that, that indeed those videos do need flash.

Also, I'm using firefox without gstreamer, so you shouldn't have any problems at all relating to that.

THANK YOU. I've been able to play all the videos that failed before. I'll remove gstreamer, too; I installed it with the hope that I would be able to play more videos.

Google, fix your damn site :x

No problem :)
AFIAK gstreamer is only needed for webkit browsers for html5 video and such (at least this is the case for me with my main browser, luakit) - Also, as 666 says there are still some that require flash but it's fairly rare to come across them in my experience, mostly this happens to me when I go to watch a video from someone I am subscribed to that literally just got the video uploaded, yet an hour or so later it will work fine.
